What is the process to create a Veterinary Feed Directive on the GlobalVetLink platform?

We curated a short step-by-step process to assist any veterinarian or member of the practice staff to easily create a Veterinary Feed Directive. We detail the steps starting at selecting a current client or creating a new owner in the system to downloading the final Veterinary Feed Directive PDF. Be prepared by having the animal location and species information, drug information and feed concentrations on hand when you start the process.

If you need additional support we offer live training sessions, our Help Center or watch our videos for saved in-depth training sessions and brief demo tutorials.
